The Iron Age is the third age the player progresses through, and allows research of technologies and building styles that represent Rome in trimes of republic , on 4th or 3rd centuries BC . The Iron Age is also the first age where the player will need to put in 11 or more Forge Points in order to research technologies in most cases.

The Iron Age includes seven provinces: Badakus, Paruuch, Ruug, Karchagu, East-Nagach, West-Nagach, and Maktaba.

It is preceded by the Bronze Age and followed by the Early Middle Ages.

The Iron Age is the third and final prehistoric time periods, with the others being the Stone and Bronze Ages. This era began when iron tools eventually replaced bronze tools at around 1200 BC, and ended with the Roman conquest of Europe at around the 1st century BC.

Around 500 BC , persians conquest Greece and Greeks fight for their freedom in the 3 medical wars . Greeks won the war .

As the same time Greeks develop their civilization , romans built their empire . Romans use greek knowedlege aplicated to Forge their empire.Originally , Rome was a Kingdom , but on year 509 BC , they killed their King . Since this year , Rome would be a Democracy . But in 1st century BC , Rome start to be a Empire .
